Weeks of Welcome

Weeks of Welcome Banner

Weeks of Welcome or WOW is Texas State's official welcome to students entering or returning to campus each semester! The first few weeks are full of events and opportunities for new and returning students to become familiar or reacquainted with the Texas State campus, fellow Bobcats, and the San Marcos community.

The Fall 2017 Weeks of Welcome will begin on Monday, August 28th and continue through Sunday, September 17th.

Check back in August for updates as we will continue to post information about new and exciting events as they develop!

What type of events take place during WOW? 

University departments from all over campus host WOW events!
